Every year at Christmas time mum and I set about decorating the house, we both love colour so can’t really get away with having a white christmas tree or a minimalist look.
I love this little Disney macaroon I gave to my mum back in summer when I want to Paris for a few days.
The Christmas Advent calendar is my favourite Christmas decoration on the whole house! I don’t remember us not having it at Christmas. My brother and I used to come down every morning and open the new and and stick it on the tree.
Of course we had to decorate the hallway, adding lights, glittery fabric and baubles to the banisters making it look like a winter wonderland.
hope you enjoyed looking around my house this Christmas and have a little nosy at how we have decorated this year. Thank you for reading!
Christmas is the perfect time to see all your friends and with the last week of college 2015 coming to a close it was only right to have a few friends over for a little celebration. As you can see I love a party. I think the hat and tie really set my outfit off 😉
I’ve been wanting to wear these trousers all through autumn and into winter, but never found the perfect way to stay warm and still look good. I think I’ve found it, flowing layers, and knits.
Pairing this long cardigan with these trousers was such a happy accident. The cardigan is super light weight yet I didn’t feel cold taking photos in the wind ( see all photos above of me not managing the wind) Ofcourse I had to glam it up a little with some rose lips and patent nude heels.
It’s become a tradition for me and Stacey to head over to Sprinkles in Landsdowne for a little girlie chin wag. After my usual choice of a scoop of mint and pistatio, we walked into Bournemouth centre. We were greeted by the most glorious winter light display.
Aren’t these Snapchat photos just a testament to how serious our conversations are? What can I say, ice cream is my everything.
As you walk through the main path in the gardens your way is lit by giant snowflakes.
Every now and again you’d walk up upon lit door frames. If I wasn’t so chicken and super aware of all the people around I would have jumped at the chance to stand inside the doorframe and posed to my hearts content (next time) we walked over to the out door bar, but it was rammed to the rafters so moved on.
I can’t wait to go back for anything exploration and adventure, maybe I’ll even try my hand at the ice skating, maybe?
I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.
I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.
This winter I think I’m the busiest I’ve even been with work, college and parties all over December. One of my favourite looks to meet the girlies in is this little skirt and these boots. I’ve mentioned these boots a while ago and I can’t stop loving them. But favourite part of this outfit is definitely this Oasis sparkly top, I love the cowl neck back and the bar across the back. it’s such a great Christmas piece that I’ve been longing to wear. I bought the shirt at last years Clothes Show live ( I’m going to this years Clothes Show!) You could wear this Christmas day and eat everything on the table and still look great.
This cape is everything to me this season. I love swaddling myself in soft warm fabric to keep out the winters wind. The colours are perfect for pairing with anything, winter dresses, trousers, blue jeans. It just works.
I hope the weather sorts its self out soon, so I can take some outfit photos outside without blowing away.
I can’t believe is November and I never got around to showing you the photos from my dad’s wedding!!! My brother and I drove to a gorgeous place just outside St Agnes, to a beautiful place called Rose in Vale Country House Hotel where we celebrated my Dad and Lisa’s wedding.
my bridesmaids dress is from – Dessy but I had it fitted at The Bridal House Cornwall who are the nicest ladies ever, super friendly and the bridal house is so beautiful.
It’s the end of October already! Halloween has been and gone and it’s nearly Christmas.
Some of these I bought at the end of September and have rediscovered and some are super recent purchases and a gift.
Mint Fudge Candle – The most sickeningly sweet mint smell that I can’t wait to light over Christmas. Mint is one of my favourite flavours and I snapped with up right away. From Home Sense.
Oola Rose Gold Terrarium – I’ve always wanted a terrarium like this, ideally I want to put a succulent inside but until then I can keep my little collection of glass stones there. From Joy
I’m sure you have seen this little necklace before but I just love wearing it. The gun metal colour the teeny tiny A, it’s just perfect for daily wear. From Fashionology
How To Be Adored, Caroline Cox – Coffee table books are my favourite type, something to flick through when you have a spare 10 mins. This book is full of great notes and tips. From Joy.
Chinese purse – I was very kindly given this from one of the Chinese girls in my class. I complimented her on her black floral version and when we came back after half term she presented me this gorgeous purse. The pattern is a famous Chinese painting if I remember correctly, red is a lucky colour in China and the knots that keep the purse closed are to protect your money. Never have I received anything so thoughtful and beautiful, thank you so much sue.
I hope you enjoyed the things I’ve been loving this past month, October has truly been great. Halloween was the perfect end to the month and I really can’t wait to see what November and December have in store for me.
